A Weekend in the City

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Last weekend, Aaron and I had a booked-well-in-advance rarity: a weekend together. We stepped onto the train and towards the unknown; a whole Saturday in each other’s company with three-for-one-pound sweets and sweet chilli crisps in our bags. It was already too much… I slept the whole way. As soon as we arrived at London […]

23/52: Sharp Objects

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Last month I packed quite a few books into my very nearly over-the-weight-limit suitcase and headed to the dreamy Paphos in Cyprus. I spent a sufficient amount of time ignoring Aaron and parking my nose neatly into a book. The first book I read and finished, to the soundtrack of waves and Aaron trying to […]

The Paphos City Guide | Food and Drink

Kathventures, Uncategorized

It’s now been just over a week since Aaron and I arrived back from what we’ve dubbed as our favourite summer holiday yet. We visited the awesome Paphos, a city that sits on the southwest coast of Cyprus. The city of meze, rocky seas and KEO (the local beer that we loved so much we […]

22/52: While I Was Sleeping

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Before I headed off on holiday just over a week ago, I tortured my heart by reading a Dani Atkins book. My mum had read While I Was Sleeping a couple of weeks before and she wanted to speak about it with someone so badly she bought me my very own copy. I have since […]

17/52: One of us is Lying


Kath's Bookshelf

I finished my seventeenth book of the year earlier this week, alongside my mum. Well, shortly after my mum because I’m not sure she actually ever stops reading. We decided to read One of us is Lying by Karen. M. Mcmanus at the same time which, being that it’s a whodunit, it was quite a […]

16/52: Eve of Man


Kath's Bookshelf

Last week I finished my sixteenth book of the year, Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher. As a New Year’s Resolution, I decided to try and read fifty-two books this year. At eleven books behind schedule, I am definitely the underdog, but feel free to take a look at what I’m reading now […]

The 1670 Cocktail


Kath's Kitchen

A couple of months ago Aaron and I visited the wonderful Edinburgh Gin Distillery¬†and, after trying their new limited edition gin, 1670, we purchased our own bottle. 1670 is a gin birthed from the collaboration of Edinburgh Gin and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. It’s described as botany meets gin distilling and it’s delicious. You can […]

Five Books You’ve Got to Read this Year


Kath's Bookshelf

Despite being massively behind on my Goodreads challenge, I have read mostly awesome books this year. Although I’m evidently not the best reader in 2018, I’m definitely the best book-picker (and I do say so myself). I’ve been following lots of people’s Goodreads journeys via Instagram, Goodreads and just by catching up with family and […]

How to Stop Feeling You’re Behind


Unkategorised

I wrote about how to be a productive morning person on Wednesday and, shortly after, was looking through The Anna Edit blog and stumbled across THIS post about what to do if you’re feeling behind with work. As usual, Anna spoke to me on a million different bloggy levels. She is my organisation inspiration and […]

How to Be a Productive Morning Person


Unkategorised

I come from a family of morning people. In my house, a sleep in means waking up at seven in the morning and waking up past eight requires a disapproving glare. Admittedly I am not as devout to seven AM as the rest of my family; if I’m honest, however, the rest of them should […]

15/52: Little Fires Everywhere


Kath's Bookshelf

I have finished the fifteenth book of the year, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I am still tackling my, upon reflection, stupid idea to read fifty-two books this year. If you’d like to watch me continue to fail (I need to book in three holidays just to catch up), feel free to follow me […]

The Mini Edinburgh City Guide


Kathventures

Edinburgh, it’s safe to say, stole my heart. It’s a grand but cosy, loud but content city that is easy to get lost in. Thankfully, though, it’s even easier to find a nice beer. The streets are hugged by buildings that exhale the city’s rich history and charming culture. If you’ve not been to Edinburgh […]

Edinburgh’s Best Drinking Spots


Kathventures

Two English people walk into some Scottish bars… Aaron and I love checking out local bars and pubs when we are visiting a new place. And Edinburgh, I can confirm, has plenty of bars and pubs. We tested out local gins (of which are also plenty!), lager, wine and even tried an obligatory whisky. Over […]

A Foodie’s Edinburgh Itinerary


Kathventures

When Aaron and I go away, we make it our mission to try as much food as our tourist bellies will allow. While, like everyone else, we love sightseeing and learning about the cities we gatecrash, our favourite part of being on holiday is learning about a place’s culture via their cuisine. We always endeavour […]
